Addicted to Stamps and More #225

Here is our inspiration for challenge #225 at Addicted to Stamps and More.
My first thought is probably your first thought.  Make a multi-colored daisy.  Then I had second thoughts and went in a completely different direction.
I asked myself (I do talk to myself often) 😊 "What else has all those colors?"  And my answer was "Balloons".  Okay, yes I answer myself too.  The balloons are SSS dies that I colored with Distress Inks using my Clarity brushes for that nice soft look.  The sentiment is also from SSS.  I popped up the larger balloons and tied on some string bows.

We'd love to see what you create using the photo as inspiration.  Maybe you'd like to check out the rest of the design team first and then link up in the gallery.  You can see their cards here.

  8. Great card - love that you used some actual string on some of the balloons! Do you think Clarity Brushes are better than sponging?

  13. Smiling, Bobby ... I too talk to myself ... and answer ... thinking it's one way of getting a conversation I'll understand (hahaha!). Delicious card ... love the way the brushed colour over those sweet balloons makes them look so soft and round and floaty ... and I adore the string sentiment ... brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)
